 Exchange Rate Regimes: Fear of Floating

Show Summary Details


A free floating exchange rate regime conflicts with an export-led development strategy because of high exchange rate volatility and lack of market supporting infrastructure. The following proposals are discussed: free floating regimes with inflation targeting, and less flexible regimes such as the BBC regime, floating with reserve intervention, and managed floating plus.

Keywords: exchange rate; flexibility; depreciation; volatility; floating; inflation targeting; intermediate regime
